Bladder infections are often caused when the bacteria E. coli reach the human bladder. Suppose that 3000 of the bacteria are present at time t = 0. Then t minutes later, the number of bacteria present will be
a) How many bacteria will be present after 10 minutes? 30 minutes? 40 minutes? 60 minutes?
b) Graph the function.
c) Use the graph to predict how many bacteria there will be at 100 minutes.
d) How many minutes will it take for the quantity of bacteria to double?

  1. Could you recheck this question? It seems there isn't any information as to if there is a slope, or not. Who's to say the amount of bacteria won't double, triple, or quintuple over a minute's time? I only picked up that at 0 min. There are 3000 of the bacteria present.
